What Will You Receive Besides a Far Better Novel Manuscript?

Welcome to the Algonkian Author Salon Novel Writing Program page on Shawguides. This program was created by a team of industry professionals that includes agents and publishers who wish to provide aspiring authors, regardless of manuscript stage, with comprehensive, rigorous training in the art and science of writing commercial fiction in multiple genres. Our step-by-step modules utilize pragmatic immersion methods that serve to methodically evolve your novel manuscript on every level as you progress through the program. See our program and module syllabus pages for more information. Upon graduation with a program certificate you will have:

1) A review by program professionals of your story premise and all major novel elements, as well as your prose narrative, for purposes of determining your competitive status vs. other writers in your genre.
2) A thorough outline of all your novel's plot beats and points.
3) 100 pages or more of your novel, or narrative non-f, in competitively polished shape.
4) A working-knowledge of the most highly regarded, industry-accepted techniques for craft writing, resulting in a personalized and competitive narrative style.
5) A realistic publication plan going forward based on your manuscript's current stage of development, as well as your writing skills.
6) A personalized consultation with one of our agent-faculty members to support your development of a professional agent query letter (if you and the faculty agree the time is right).
